I agree! I would only differ to say that someone with larger hands (like me) might find a medium nib and posting the cap more natural.

I really like the look of the Pearwood -- I have the black Ambition as well (in a fine nib) and like that look also.

There really is only a small difference between the fine and medium nibs for this pen.

I also agree, Nice pen I have the exact same one. Smooth great writer, and around the 100 dollar mark it's a great buy. Unfortunately a bit thin for my mitts....it only gets occasional use. Which is not fair for such an exceptional pen
Please do not listen to me. My opinions do not count
